to michelle obama, the most popular democrat in the country. nothing beats having a former president to affirm you. especially a guy like bill clinton. people believe him on the economy. >> why is he doing it? >> you know, i think part of it is that his legacy is in a sense tied to barack obama's. because a lot of what he's saying is let's go back to the clinton rates on taxes. there's an affirmation of him in barack obama getting re-elected. and of course they did bring their two political power house families together with the hiring of hillary clinton into the cabinet of barack obama. if you want to take the most cynical view of it, if hillary clinton wants to run in 2016, what better way to set that up. >> we've got some huge loyalty markers that are going to be able to called in on this deal. >> absolutely. >> i think president clinton not only shas he done the job for president obama, but the work that he's doing for, on the down-ballot is just amazing. do you think he can swing some races? >> i think absolutely. if you look at -- i'm seeing popping into my inbox, smaller candidates like
, with some of the emotion as both candidates were wrapping up those speeches last night. michelle obama, i thought, as well, was, was emotional, more emotional certainly than i've heard her before, when she was talking to the crowd. let's play a little bit of that. >>> the auto industry was in crisis. this economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month. and a lot of folks were wondering whether we were headed for another great depression. do you hear me? that's what people were worrying about. and that is what barack faced on day one as president of the united states. >> how emotional has this last tour for the president and michelle obama been? >> it's been very emotional. and last night, when i watched some of that i found myself walking away from the television, i know michelle obama's family very well. her family roots, on her father's side, or right here in south carolina and georgetown county, which was a part of my congressional district, so i understand that emotion ap. so those emotions, you get wrapped up here and then you lay your heart out, and you know that you were not dealt a hand
with two distinctive styles. >> michelle obama wears h & m, things that the normal person could buy, even though the majority of the time she is dressed in high-end designer clothing. she still that has that relatable touch to her. >> ann romney typically favors more high end. >> ann romney dresses in a very refined, expensive looking way. she wears a lot of designer clothing, but she still has fun with her style. she mixes prints. she loves a bright red dress. >> while both women received high praise for their convention attire, they have also faced criticism for some of their wardrobe choices. michelle obama for not wearing an american designer to a state dinner last night and ann romney ruffled some feathers when she word this $900 bird print t-shirt earlier this year, but regardless of the highs and lows, it's not just about who wore what about you how these women will leave their mark. >> well, avril graham is executive fashion and beauty editor for "harper's bazaar." good morning to you. >> good morning. >> with all the stress of the campaign it's fun to talk about something like fa
for sure and michelle obama. >> michelle, i have never loved you more, i have never been prouder that watch the rest of america fall in love with you too, as our nation's first lady. [ cheers and applause ] >> bill: a great moment there. the president saying last night listen i have not maybe been the perfect president. he always says that, but i was listening to what you wanted me to do and i tried to do my best. >> obama: whether i earned our vote or not, i have listened to you. i have learned from you and you've made me a better president. >> bill: and just jump in here to the very final words. this is the president his last campaign event of his career. >> obama: we are and forever will be the united states of america and together with your help and god's grace, we will continue our journey forward you and remind the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on earth. thank you america. god bless you. [ cheers and applause ] >> bill: very great moment last night. peter, some important senate races, too. democrats had a good night in the u.s. senate. >> democrats had a gre
. president obama's 2010 trip to india. u.s. congresswoman, michele bachmann and others on the right, were up in arms over rumors about what the trip would cost. >> i think we know that just within a day or so, the president of the united states will be taking a trip over to india that is expected to cost the taxpayers $200 million a day. we have never seen a trip at this level before of this level of excess. i think it is not a good signal to send to the american people when the american people are quite, frankly, struggling with high job losses. >> for comparison, $200 million a day would have surpassed the daily cost of the war in afghanistan at the time. that nonfactual story from michele bachmann about the cost of obama's trip was started been an unnamed source on an indian news website and somehow got into the ether there. we can't talk about conspiracy theories without bringing up rush limbaugh. remember the first day of the republican convention was canceled due to hurricane isaac. rush then floated the idea that president obama was somehow involved with the weather reports showing th
-elected if it happens. >> definitely. next to michelle obama, the most popular democrat in the country. nothing beats having a former president to affirm you. especially a guy like bill clinton who is a walking advertisement for good governance. people believe him on the economy. >> why is he doing it? why is he so fervored about it? >> you know, i think part of it is that his legacy is in a sense tied to barack obama's. because a lot of what he's saying is let's go back to the clinton economic plans or the clinton rates on taxes. there's an affirmation of him in barack obama getting re-elected. and of course they did bring their two political powerhouse families together with the hiring of hillary clinton into the cabinet of barack obama. if you want to take the most cynical view of it, if hillary clinton wants to run in 2016, what better way to set that up. >> wait. we've got some huge loyalty markers that are going to be able to called in on this deal. >> absolutely. >> look, i think president clinton not only has he done the job for president obama, but the work that he's doing for -- on the down
, iowa. joined by bruce springsteen and first lady michelle obama. this is what the scene looks like in downtown des moines. governor romney will be joined by his wife for his campaign appearances in what was scheduled to be the final event but he would not be on the campaign trail tomorrow at the cleveland and pittsburgh. rock hill, south carolina. dale, republican line. caller: hi. i just want to scratch -- congratulate president romney. my daughter graduated from college. she was 4.0 in business administration. she cannot find a job. if the people would just look at mbers and the record, i do not know how anyone can talk about putting barack obama back in there for a second term. people say governor romney has light -- has lied, i followed this race from the debates when he was a candidate. he stuck to his guns. one thing that really swayed me was when his wife said that when he was talking about running and she looked at him and said, can he still fix this? and he said yes. i think governor romney is a winner. there is nothing wrong with being rich. i think he has helped a lot of
michelle obama and ohio had to events. joe biden had her first and only solo campaign event yesterday in ohio. we are seeing a lot of the presidential candidates. we're going wherever they are. host: tom tory was joining us from cleveland. meanwhile we are live in lakewood, ohio. thank you for being with us. guest: my pleasure. host: next is carolyn, democrat's line. good afternoon. caller: i am just calling to say that i am very pleased with my president. he has done all he can to work with the republicans. they will not work with him. i am from a small town. it is evident how vindictive they are. the way they did president obama, and they have not done anything. they said religion was off the table. what i have read about organism, i do not want nobody that doesn't serve god. host: republican line. caller: i am just disgusted to listen to all these lies. i just listen to biden. i would like to know -- i like the americans to know if obama is president again we're going to end up like russia. there are thousands of family in cincinnati that have led from socialism. if we have obama a
at the time. that nonfactual story from michele bachmann about the cost of obama's trip was started by an unnamed source on an indian news website and somehow got into the ether. rush limbaugh. remember the first day of the republican convention was canceled due to hurricane isaac? well, rush then floated the idea that president obama was somehow involved with the weather reports, showing that tampa might get hit. >> got a hurricane coming. the national hurricane center, which is a government agency, is very hopeful that the hurricane gets near tampa. the national hurricane center's obama. it's the national weather service, part of the commerce department. it's obama. i can see obama sending fema in in advance of the hurricane hitting tampa. so that the republican convention is nothing but a bunch of tents in tampa, a bunch of rvs and stuff. make it look like a disaster area before the hurricane even hits there. >> was he laughing at his own b.s. there? did you ever think rush limbaugh would warn us of a skewed weather report? yeah, actually. next, an extreme case of pre-election fe
west, for example, is running in a district where obama won. and michele bachmann is feeling the heat in minnesota, steve king in iowa is running against the wife after former governor, tom vilsack and he's feeling the heat, too, an interesting night. >> one of the interesting strategies, the reason they said they would take the house back, they would put pressure on the so-called orphan states, california, and where mitt romney isn't playing, they're not competitive in that race, but the house seats, okay, we can plow a lot of money in, and republican turnout will be down and we can turn the seats, but they're going to win a couple of them, but surprising so far in the polling, republicans are holding their own in those seats, why? >> you're right. they are he' doing this very aggressively, especially going after freshmen that won in 2010, guys like bobby schilling in illinois the first republican to get elected in his district in 30 years. the reason you're not going to see a huge shift is because one thing the republicans did well. not only being aggressive in the south and some of

? michele bachmann, the tea party did not extend its raks in congress. where does the movement go from here? that's next. eóoç=Ñp >>> president obama's re-election was obviously a loss for mitt romney, a bad one, but by extension, may have been an even bigger loss for the tea party. after all, paul ryan, a tea party favorite, couldn't deliver his own state of wisconsin for his ticket. he will return to his house seat to serve an eighth term. many tea party members kept their house seats as well but they didn't increase their ranks on tuesday, and they lost two very winnable senate races. it's a pretty big contrast to the splash they made in the 2010 midterm elections and the muscle they flexed throughout the prime primaries. here's gary tuchman. >> reporter: this is not the scene most supporters of the tea party envisioned or desired. barack obama was supposed to be a one-term president. >> liberty, yes. obama care, no. liberty, yes. obama care, no. >> reporter: a primary mission of the tea party, get the government out of people's lives. there was even an african-american led chapter

every 30 years or so. we're not done with the allen wests of the year or the michele bachmanns or even the sharon angels of the world. we're also not done with the bill clintons of of the world and the barack obamas of the world. >> we hear rand paul is talking about not a 30-year run but possibly four years. >> he's still viable. i think it's important to remember that what allen west represented beyond just the tea party was an anti-islamic really almost jihadism and it took root in south florida. he was very stridently anti-muslim and in a way that was ironic because he is an african-american and he took that to extremes as well. at the end of the day he also voted to raise the debt ceiling. so he wasn't a purist on tea party ideology. he think he represents a lot of the contradictions and a lot of the failings of the extreme right and his having lost even narrowly was a huge symbolic victory for democrats. he was one of the top ten targets for democrats in the 2012 election. his losing has great significance. i agree with goldie that tea party ideology is the republican party's bas
, that moment of outrage, it came with the passage of obama care. >> reporter: ultimately, palin decided not to run for president in 2012. but friends of the tea party like newt gingrich, rick santorum, herman cain, rick perry and michele bachmann did. i caught up with bachmann at the state fair in 2010. she was running for re-election for congress and was at the height of her influence. >> i don't take it for granted. i don't take any election for granted. thank you. >> reporter: in 2012 not only did her support drop quickly in the presidential race, she barely won her congressional race this week. it was worse for two other tea party favorites. todd akin lost his senate race in missouri. his effort not helped by this comment. >> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> reporter: and richard mourdock lost his senate race in indiana after he said this. >> even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> reporter: the tea party's anti-government message continues to resonate w
. boehner was for a deal last year. we have to figure out what does eric cantor think, what does michele bachmann think, what does rand paul think? john bainer is the leader of the republican party in name, but he often is not leading them in policy. unless we know obama $1 trillion in tax increases, i'm not sure that rush limbaugh is for that right now. until we know that other conservatives outside of john boehner support that idea, it's hard to see where the compromise is. so i think i'm not optimistic either about where we are right now. >> just to jump in, i would echo that. sometimes we analyze these guys like boehner is the ceo. and that may be the case, but he has a board of directors. he's got other stakeholders to deal with. and we've got to see some movement from them if that bipartisanship that you were talking about in the beginning, mara, if that's going to go anywhere. >> i'm sorry, go ahead. >> i would just point out there was real skepticism about whether boehner could deliver a deal with the debt ceiling fight. and his party did buck his leadership to some extent, but u
